The Red Wind Very pulpy Very LA A murder or two, a detective, some clumsy cops and a dame Chandler once described LA as a big hard boiled city with no personality than a paper cup His books a hard broiled as well with not a lot of depth but fun. Chandler is always great, especially because they take place in Los Angeles. I dunno, California seems really bleak and depressing for being a fantasy land full of dreams and illusions I guess that s about right.

Red Wind is the title of a short story written by Raymond Chandler Raymond Chandler is considered by some the father of hard boiled crime fiction, and Red Wind is supposed to be the best of his short stories This is why I grabbed the audiobook, Red Wind, narrated by Elliott Gould, on Audible.com, which is not the story collection pictured in GR s version listed above AnywayChandler s P.I isn t new to me He s the Humphrey Bogart character, Philip Marlowe The Big Sleep , who can size up a dame as fast as he can bring down a gunman Red Wind was first published in 1938, in the crime fiction magazine, Black Mask This is important to me because 1 I m trying to get a sense of the origins of my favorite genre mystery, and 2 my dad always had a stack of those pulp crime fiction magazines by his recliner in the early fifties No doubt he had been reading them in the late thirties when he started working as an investigator in Marlowe s city, L.A My next job is to find out how detectives and crimes, as well as eggs, can be hard boiled. Che Chandler sia un maestro indiscusso del genere lo sapevo gi , ma finora avevo sempre trascurato i suoi racconti Cos ho aperto questa raccolta Ogni volta che ne terminavo uno, mi dicevo non si pu fare meglio di cos E poi il racconto successivo mi smentiva A volte sbagliarsi piacevole e questo vale anche per le trame dei suoi racconti, che ti portano su una falsa pista e ti fanno girare a vuoto, per poi sorprenderti con un colpo di coda finale Piccoli giocattoli a molla, architettati alla perfezione S , ho detto perfezione, perch qui si tratta di Chandler, ragazzi.
